US: Long Island Spirits signs Winebow deal for LiV vodka
Long Island Spirits has entered into a distribution relationship with Winebow, the third largest distributor in New York, for its LiV Vodka brand.
The deal will see LiV available in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington DC, the company said today (4 Februrary).
LiV Vodka, which, the company claims, operates in the ultra premium vodka category, had previously only been available for sale in New York State. The vodka retails for US$38 (750ml) and $44 (1 litre), and was released last June.
"We are thrilled to add LiV Vodka to Winebow's exclusive portfolio of artisanal spirits," said Richard Driscoll, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Winebow. "This is the first time in the history of Winebow that we have done a simultaneous launch in all of our six wholesale markets."
